CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA – The revolutionary new TrailFlex™ Modular Pack System has signed on as a sponsor for the 2007 Adventure Race Collegiate Nationals, which will be held in Reno, Nevada, on April 15, 2007.

Organized by the U.S Adventure Racing Association and cable network CSTV, the event will feature teams from colleges around the country battling it out for bragging rights as adventure race national champions. Two-person teams will mountain bike, trail run and paddle their way to victory.

“We are very proud to be a sponsor of the Adventure Race Collegiate Nationals,” said Eric Kauss, TrailFlex President. “The TrailFlex Modular Pack System is extremely well suited to the demands of adventure racers, who require flexible and reliable carrying systems in a multitude of environments, just as it suits the needs of hikers and fly fishing devotees.”

Available in light, durable fabrics, the innovative, patent-pending design of the TrailFlex System provides a torso-hugging foundation on which adventure racers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts can attach a wide variety of gear – from GPS pouches to energy drink holders – with comfort, convenience and easy access.
